It's been brought to my attention that I seem to have the reputation to be the male bashing around here. Is this really the perception people have of me.

I know I couldn't give the impression of being demure or blending with the wallpaper to save my life... but do you feel like I hate men from reading my blogs. Do I sound like all men are bad to the core?

I applaude you on your candor on the many topics you comment on. I have to say that you  say what is on your mind. You voice your opinions on a wide varity of subjects and you don't pull your punches. So in the now P.C. (politically correct) world some may take your, questiong the establishment, and your  honesty as  a negative attitude. Na I say  keep marching to your own drum , as for the others. Let them be as simple minded as Lemmings  in their attitude towards life. We all know what happens to lemmings... they  ALL follow the  Pack Leader right over the cliffs to their deaths.  Not me I like  living too much.

Thank you. You see me for who I am. Someone very curious of things. At the same time, I know that admitting something is the only way you can change something you want to change. I asked people because sometimes there are things about yourself you don't see or don't want to see.

My Dad use to have an expression I live by now. An impression is never good or bad... it's there. Adress it. If I give the impression that I'm a male basher, it doesn't mean I am one. It's an impression only. But I need to adress it if it's there and I feel it's not one I want to give.

Smooch..

Very perceptive. I am happy with my life and who I am. You're right I'm more into the blogs then finding someone now... because I've checked and systematically contacted every men in a 100 miles radius from my place. I had very little results. Now that I've done my part, I focus on the blogs which give me great pleasure and let the men who are intrigued, interested, who wants to know me, contact me and we take it from there.

You are right, I'm totally intolerant if someone or something is dishonest. I'm know to be a very tolerant person when it comes to culture, languages, people's differences. I thrive on differences, love studying them, trying to find what cause the differences to get a better understanding.

But I'm intolerant of games and manipulation, of lies and deception, of players... men and women. I hope my blogs express that nuance in my intolerance.

I know I might be hard on men sometimes... but I thought I was equally hard on women... like on my blog woman's arsenal. I just hate dishonesty... My personal experience is that I've meet quite a few lying men... most men I've talk to do lie. Why I don't know. But I find is just as reprehensible coming from women.

The difference is that as I'm not looking for a woman, I don't get as many lies from them. There comes a point where I get overwhelmed by the lies and the games some men play and I get pissed off. I'm french, latin blood... it has to come out some way... and it does in my blog.

I ask the question because a man told me that I wasn't a desirable date because I hate men. I thought I had to check into this. Seems like his perception wasn't exactly wrong... hehehehe

Can just see you eating them up and smiling while your lips as you devour them. LOL

Nope dont see you as a man basher at all. You are strong (maybe a bit pushy hehe) and firm to your convictions....a good way to be.

Would say maybe a bit intolerant at times, but then I have been told I'm a push over and way too diplomatic...should we change?

Keep blogging and sharing whats on your mind, it is refreshing on a site this where so many people are pretending to be something they are not. xx



Life is only as wonderful as you think it is.

The posts that I have read so far I get the impression that you wonder about alot of things that either say or do. I think that you are a very inquizative and intellectal. You seem to want to ask some of the questions that everyone have. I have asked myself some of the same questions that you have asked in the posts that I have read so far.

No, I don't see you as anything remotely close to a man-hater. I see you as an articulate, educated human being who writes what she is feeling (at the time) quite well. One would have to be pretty narrow minded (or just plain ignorant) to think that. Most people would read several of your blogs (and then research some of the old ones, too) before making such a judgemental decision. People who would blatantly make such a comment to someone are what I call: "inconsequential". Just some bug guts on the windshield of life. Wipe it off, and keep right on driving! --Good luck, Petale. Keep blogging! --True

Hi Petale, You asked - I have found your latest blogs "negative" or more of a male bashing nature. I guess you need to get it out of your system cause it doesn't look like you're looking for a partner but I think you said before theat you enjoy the blogs and conversation much more than the hunt for the elusive perfect male. While I appreciate your honesty - I think you're a little jaded but comfortable with your life.

Petale, I wouldn't dream of pointing the finger or judging you or any of the other bloggers. But I'll make an observation as someone who regularly reads the blogs and goes through phases of posting myself.... This site is primarly set up for people who would like to find a friend/partner/soulmate. It does, therefore, strike me as odd (and sometimes amusing!) that some of the female posters seem to swing between two extremes.... Sometimes they criticise, moan, whinge and spit all sorts of venom and vitriole about the opposite sex. Then as soon as a new male dares post something vaguely articulate they pounce and throw themselves at said male ..... then we don't see him for dust, LOL! 'tis a funny old world, hehehe!
